Probably the strut bearing assembly - a rubber isolated bushing that mounts on top of the strut inside the front shock towers (the three fasteners sticking up from your shock towers).
About $40 each from BAT - might be cheaper elsewhere. Easy to replace if you capable of pulling the strut off and compressing the spring to replace the strut bearing.
Nothing to really worry about with re-aligning the front suspension if you use the OE pieces. If you decide to replace them with the adjustable strut bearings (about +-1 degree of caster/camber) you would need an alignment. But beware the adjustable strut bearings aren't nearly as isolated and can/do make thunking noises at times.
